The rock icon was performing in Suarez’s native Uruguay. It just so happened that the concert took place at the Estadiu Centenario in Montevideo, Uruguay; the same stadium at which Suarez leads the front line for the Uruguayan national team.
McCartney played a little game of call-and-response with the crowd, shouting out the name of his hometown (and favorite football club) “Liverpool.” The crowd didn’t roar then, but when he yelled out “Suarez” the Uruguayan fans went wild.
Suarez himself took to twitter when he heard what happened.
See McCartney shout out Luis Suarez in the video below.
